The Joy of Ownership

There’s an upside to having Republicans like Rep. Phil Gingery (GA) and Mike Pence (IN) grovel and snivel at the feet of Rush Limbaugh. As DougJ at Balloon Juice notes,

The mistake the Republicans are making here is a basic one: now they’ve admitted that they take orders from Rush, they’re on the hook for all the crazy ass things he says on the show. And that’s not a good place to be.

True. So every time Rush Limbaugh comes out with one of his whoppers, like “I hope Obama fails,” or “we have to bend over, grab the ankles, bend over forward, backward whichever, because his father was black, because he’s the first black president,” or plays “Barack the Magic Negro,” we should all turn to the Republican leadership in the House, the Senate, and the RNC and say, “And your thoughts on this are…?”

To put it in the pithy argot of the street: Hey, GOP, Rush owns your ass; title, taxes, and license plate included.
